Deuteronomy 6 and 10 (The Love of God) with Jon Levenson

Join us as Dr. Jon Levenson (Harvard Divinity School) talks to us about Deuteronomy 6 and 10. We discuss a number of things including: the content, translation, and importance of the Shema in Deuteronomy 6; the relationship between obedience, ritual, and love; the elaboration on and expansion of love in Deuteronomy 10; the relationship between the love and fear of God; and the detriments of a critical approach to biblical scholarship that excludes the love of its subject matter. Listen here.
